    Actress Brittany Murphy's sudden death, just like Michael Jackson's untimely demise before her, has quickly been exploited by scareware scammers.

    A spike in searches on Murphy's death has been taken as a theme for Black Hat SEO attacks, designed to push sites that have been hacked to redirect surfers to scareware portals into prominence in search engine results.

    Windows users who click on links to poisoned search results get exposed to a fake anti-virus scan, designed to frighten users into buying rogue security software of little or no utility. </paste>

    So he says, but I bet any money if it was another up skirt shot of
    Britney Spear's muffin he would click on it.

    Because all men enjoy muffin shots, unless you are gay.
    The girl who sings, 'It's Britney, Bitch'.
